was not able to defend himself. >> i'm sorry i'll stop the subsidy to pbs. i love big bird. >> he has been rehearsing for this since last june. >> i have no idea what you're talking about. i may need to get a new accountant. >> some fundamental dishonesty that we saw last night. >> we need more firement, more teachers, it's time to cut back on government. >> the reject the idea that i don't like teachers. >> romney had a momentum. >> i have to respond. >> i said i'm not a perfect man and i wouldn't be a perfect president, and that's probably a promise that governor romney thinks i kept. >> cenk: it's time to keep it real on "the young turks," that's what we do. you can tell from the banners behind me, it did not go well. the president was banged around. it was viewed by more people since 1980. look at that. according to a cnn poll 67-25 a walloping who saw that coming other than governor granholm. not a lot of people. man, it wasn't pretty. today, president obama is probably having this moment, and i'm sure you know, it's called.

on food stamps today. >> i'm sorry, jim. i am going to stop the subsiddity to pbs. i like pbs, i like big bird. i actually like you too. but i won't borrow money from china to pay for it. >> you say you get a deduction for taking jobs overseas. i have been in business 25 years, i have no idea what you are talking about. but the idea of getting a deduction for sending jobs overseas is outrageous. >> look, it was a chance for each of us to describe our vision for the country. and the president talked about his vision, which was basically a continuation of the policies of the last four years. he wants another stimulus. he wants to have government investing for us. he wants to hire more government workers. he wants to raise taxes, as the vice-president biden blurted out today, they want to raise taxes by a trillion dollars, or more like $2 trillion by our calculation. he has laid out the same policies he has been following the last four years. i don't think that sells very well when people hear that. he also didn't have the chance to continue to misrepresent my views. i got the chance to pres
was able to talk about things like funding for pbs and never had explained his position supporting bankruptcy for the american auto industry. obama rescued the american auto industry, our largest industrial industry, it never came up. on the very heart of the romney economic plan, on the tax cut, why did he insist on the deductions? they're not details, the president called them. they're not loopholes, they're mortgag mortgages, charitable deductions, state and local. huge issues at the very heart of the romney economic plan. the 47%, he let romney come out there as a guy who cared about people and social security. he's on the record with his fundraisers where you pay $50,000 to hear what he really thinks as using your phrase. he said these people were all moochers and bums. on health care, four or five times he slipped away. romney in recent days has said if you have a health problem, you're poor and live in an apartment, as he put it, we won't let you die there, you're going to go to the emergency room. that is the romney economic health care plan. at each point he said on pre-ex
of government. the moderator from pbs will ask president obama the first question and then candidates will alternate for all 90 minutes. for each question the candidates will have two minutes to respond and are not permitted to talk to each other. much more on the debate when i'm joined by one of the smartest political minds and politics, call growth. you don't want to miss that. all right. both candidates will be trying to win over undecided middle-class voters, and the big concern, who has the better tax plan. romney floating a new idea. today at of the debate which includes a cap on itemized deductions. for more on this on joined by scott hodge, president of the tax foundation. welcome to the show. i have listened to the radio interview, and i'm having a hard time making sense of this. the basics of this plan, and this is finessing a plan that is already out in the marketplace. he would cap itemize deductions at $17,000. taxpayers would choose which deduction to claim, which still lose. now, kendis work? do you think it is a good idea? >> well, i am a tax purists. i think it is a l
like i bring or are we going to have pinheaded stuff like pbs does? what are we going to have? we're not going to have passion as you call it, whatever it is that you have. >> none of that. >> look, it's supposed to be all on the economy so i think it's probably going to be, you know, pretty straightforward. hopefully a difficult question holding obama accountable and making him account for his record. >> bill: are you talking about this debate or it's undebated in the land of oz? don't you guys get it? it doesn't matter what lehrer asks. they are north going to answer that question. neither of them are going to answer it. they are going to -- they have been rehearsing. what do you think they have been rehearsing over the past three months? they have got all their little answers and they will spit them out no matter what he asks, leslie. >> i don't disagree with you there, bill. definitely this is something. >> bill: we're north going to get any straightforward answers. >> i don't agree with you there though. i don't agree with you there. >> bill: hold on. i'm lehrer, okay? i have
to your head. >> joining us this morning, authors of the book. the documentary airs tonight on pbs and tomorrow night as well. the book is amazing. i know richard had a chance to see the documentary. he's been raving about it for the last several days. >> so exciting to see this finally come to pass after all these years. >> when you're writing the book you talked about individual women's stories. sort of the horrors that they had to overcome. and sort of what input really helped them. "half the sky" we should mention comes from women holding up half the sky. >> a chinese saying. >> exactly. tell me little bit about what you loved about your research in the book that made you think this needs to be a documentary. >> it really started many, many years ago when we were in china. and we had found out that there were some problems in the countryside with women. we had covered tian men square. we started discovering there were 30 million missing female girls, female babies, from the chinese population. which was a stunning number. >> 30 million. >> 30 million. partly through infanticid
. it will be moderated by jim lehrer, host of pbs's "newshour." they'll have 15 minutes. ask a question, two minutes to respond. jake tapper pointed out on "world news." the president a little loquacious. one of his responses to jake was five minutes. got to cut that down a little bit. >> the media, we are guilty of this. we cover the horse race. we cover -- the one-liners or awkward moments. >> zingers. >> people watch -- i hope millions tune in to watch, they pay attention to the substance, how the two men differ in policies as opposed to who looked nervous, who had a little bit of sweat, who gave the quirky one-liner. >> check on the watch. >> yeah, hopefully people focus on the stuff that matters. we'll see. we'll see. >>> in pennsylvania big day today, there will be a vote on the voter i.d. law. it could still be appeared to the state supreme court here. we have seen that play out in different states around the country. virginia, ohio. so as just a few weeks out starting to see some of the judges take action one way or the other. how it is going to turn out. pennsylvania pay attention to that t
to pbs. i like pbs. i love big bird. i like you too. megyn: last but not least the sound bite we cut talking about how he didn't understand barack obama's charge about setting, how you get a tax break for sending jobs overseas. listen here. >> second topic, which as you said get a deduction for taking a plant overseas. look i've been in business for 25 years. i have no idea what you're talking about. i maybe need to get a new accountant but the idea that you get a break for shipping jobs overseas is simply not the case. what we do have right now is where i like to bring money from overseas back to this country. megyn: your thoughts? >> well, i think that, mitt romney was trailing president obama on the likeability factor. the clips you show show mitt romney being more likeable than ones average voters see on given night at rally and crowd, he comes across much sterner while banging it away. he has moderated tone in that debate. the question whether he can do it. his campaign talked about etch-a-sketch moment. maybe that is the case. given six weeks romney had coming into the debate.
minutes and then there is a rebuttal. megyn: jim lehrer of pbs will be moderating. they devote the rest of the 15-minute block to a discussion. so hopefully there will be a chance to press the candidates for followup, or real answers if they try to dodge. because you know and our viewers know having watched 25 presidential debates during the primaries, they all do it. they dodge. they hear this is a question on jobs. what's my policy on jobs, this what is i'm going to say without necessarily answering the question asked. hopefully the mat, the discussion after the initial response will give us a chance to hear real answers. having studies up on these debates it seems like the need many gets moved not so much by these soaring rhetorical moment but by a gafer that one of them may have or by one moment of connection that they may have with the viewers at home. ronald reagan, there you go again. bill: i think you make a great point on that. what you are saying is it's built in a format that will help encourage robust exchanges that would alloy the other to challenge the other one. megyn: we
moderator, jim lehrer, of pbs. >> both candidates saying for months it will be crucial. >>> also, in this half hour, in this first half, a new showdown is heating up. a tree that almost killed, well, mcsteamy as you know him from "grey's anatomy." his wife was awe alone in the backyard. a tree fell on her from the next door neighbor's yard. a big legal battle brewing. >> and the lead singh from the smashing pumpkins. >>> first, we're going to get to the latest trouble for american airlines. a story we first brought you on "good morning america." another flight was forced to make an emergency landing last night. and abc's jim avila has been tracking all of the developments. jim, good morning. >> reporter: good morning, elizabeth. american pilots could be at the bargaining table as early as today, perhaps bringing to an end a string of delays that is crippling the reputation of the bankrupt airline which seems to be suffering one maintenance problem to another. this morning, the embattled american airlines under the microscope again. >> i have a gear unsafe flight. >> reporter: ano

. romney not making any friends with pbs, the station is also fighting back on romney's plan to cut its fund-raising. and that romney does not understand the value americans place on public broadcasting, and the return in its investment. the corporation gets about $450 million a year. that might sound like a lot but it is just 1% of the entire federal budget and works out to just about $1.35 per american. as for the winners of the debate, well that goes to republican fund-raising. romney's super pac restore our future is not giving out any specific amounts but they did say the day after the debate is the best day it has had the entire campaign. the national republican senor toal committee send an email praising romney's performance and asking for support. more coming up next. we'll be right back. ♪ viewer for capella university. matter. >> i wouldn't be where i am today if it wasn't for capella university. i go to work every day and know that i make a difference. when patients leave this office they have hope in their eyes. it make me feel like i'm really doing what
